The ASTUTE 2020 (Advanced Sustainable Manufacturing Technologies) operation will collaborate with the High Value Manufacturing industry in West Wales & the Valleys to support industrial Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) through world-class academics and a team of highly qualified technical experts and project managers. We will work with manufacturing companies across a range of different sectors like automotive, aerospace, medical etc.
ASTUTE 2020 – Industry projects will:
- be demand-led by industry
- require a Research Challenge in Computational Engineering Modelling, Advanced Materials Technology or Manufacturing Systems Engineering
- involve Collaboration, so that the companies and the Universities share the inputs, outputs and risks.
ASTUTE 2020's aim is to stimulate transformational & sustainable growth by facilitating and de-risking the development and adoption of advanced technologies, increasing competitiveness and future proofing.
ASTUTE 2020 has been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government and the participating Higher Education Institutions.
